Hi everyone, I recently bought a 318IS coupe AUTO (4 gears)

I notice when I drive off in D, being gentle on the throttle, the car jerks(rocks) a little bit then shifting for he first time.

however if I put my foot down the shift is very smooth .

any ideas?

Hey Justin,

do you use the S switch to get extra powere in lower gears? When you are in 4th for eg and floor the throttle, your tranny should kick-down into 2nd or 3rd to give you the power you need.

my car just rocks when shifting from 1-2 (or is it? 2-3) Do these cars start in 2nd?
